In his interview with Shaykh ‘Alī Jum‘a, the muftī of Egypt, the author of the article asks about fatwas and those qualified to issue them.
The author of the article cites a few examples of the fatwas that have resulted in controversy amongst Muslims.
There are a variety of often contradictory fatwas being issued on television, but the author argues that such disagreement is normal and should not worry Muslims, given that the imāms of the four schools of Islam frequently disagreed over the details of religious matters.
A recent fatwa by the muftī of Egypt, Dr. ‘Alī Jum‘a, allowing Muslims to sell liquor to non-Muslims in non-Muslim countries, has stirred up wide controversy among Egyptian Muslim scholars.
The article discusses whether or not working with tourists is forbidden in Islam. Some radical sheiks advocate that Muslims do not work in the tourism industry while mainstream Islam rejects such opinions.
